    Default Job Recommendations/Sites

    Would anyone point me to any good sites they would recommend for:
    1. Help writing resumes
    2. Finding good jobs in local area

    OR

    Good jobs that are qualifications for an INFP/J
    I've tried arts and crafts stores, restaurants, newspaper, pet stores, and 2 departments stores and they are booked.

    Edit: Here's my background. I have graduated May of 2010 with a BGS with con. in Fine Art. I have been looking for work for over a year. My goal is to get a part-time job for about a year or two and then go back to school one day for a Masters Degree in Graphic Design. Naturally, I'm stubborn in my beliefs of what I want to do; I wanted to be an illustrator for kids and teens books. I try right now to be realistic to get a particular job; I REALLY DO NOT want to work at a fast food restaurant but it seems that I might have to to at least find something. It does get discouraging that I'm either over-qualified or under-qualified. I'm very naive about how the work force works. I'm not struggling for money or anything, but I do need to become more independent.

    Is that a serious question or are you insulting me because you think I'm an idiot?

    I think it's more so you don't have your location listed and he/she is not a psychic. You used the word resume but you could be Canadian Or American Or Other.

    Have you tried http://www.monster.com/ ?
    Veni, Vidi, Cessi.

    seems like you are looking for a part-time job. those types of jobs have tons of people between the ages of like 16-30+ trying to apply for them... so just apply to more and call back the ones that you've applied to. call them once a week and ask to speak to the mgmt to see if they've gotten a chance to look at your application.


    those types of jobs do not require a resume... you could find tons of jobs in 5 min on craigslist (i'm not being an ass, but if you're looking for a part-time gig as like a receptionist or something that'll do ya).

    as far as job qualifications that suit your type... sounds like you're just looking for part-time work, if you're looking for a career then i'd suggest reading what color is my parachute and figuring your life out. :]

    Actually, yes. I am looking for a part-time job. I know it's not a big deal to write a resume, but I would like to have one in the near future if I go full time. I did get some help for resume writing, but it sounds like a job for a teacher of some sort.
    You see I have no experience in job. I graduated with a BGS over a year ago and it seems like if one doesn't have ANY job experience, no one will hire you. You're either over-qualified or under-qualified. Frustrating to me. But yes, calling them does seem more reasonable to do. (Will edit more information)

    I have in the past, but I'm not really satisified with the type of jobs they have posted on their site.

    Of course it was a serious question.

    I asked beause i didn't want to PRESUME which country you lived in. I'm in the UK and i know a resume is written differently than in Canada. I used to assist people getting into employment (before i was made redundant 3 weeks ago due to government funding cuts) and helped writing CV's, cover letters, interview techniques etc.

    There was no point me wasting my time offering UK sites for information if you don't live in the UK.

    EDIT - Just seen your post in the thread i started so i am unable to offer any suitable advice
